The Church of Roy podcast is back to discuss the Trail Blazers’ recent four-game stretch. Hosts Brian Wilcox and Steve Dewald dive into the areas that have improved since they last spoke. From rebounding to limiting turnovers, the Blazers have made steady strides since the start of the season.

Along with the positives, Brian and Steve highlighted the Blazers’ shaky three-point defense. Opponents are torching the nets from distance when they face Portland. How can coach Chauncey Billups adjust his scheme to better cover corner three-pointers?

Damian Lillard’s slow start to the year took center stage in the main segment of today’s show. Both Brian and Steve are preaching patience when it comes to Lillard’s struggles from beyond the arc. That said, Steve made it a point to highlight Lillard’s shooting numbers in the Blazers’ four losses.

In the final minutes of the show, Brian and Steve delivered their predictions for the week ahead. Will the Blazers land above .500 when the next episode drops?
